Tribute & Message From The Family


LISBON, NH – Rene N. Ranno, 60, passed away peacefully at his home on September 22, 2020 after a courageous battle with pancreatic cancer, with his family by his side.

Rene was born on December 7, 1959 at Cottage Hospital in Woodsville, NH, a son to Huguette (Bilodeau) Ingerson and George Ranno. He was raised in Littleton and attended Littleton High School. He moved to Lisbon in 1990 where he resided until his passing.

Rene worked as a logger for many years with J.W. Chipping Corp., which was owned and operated by his stepfather, Douglas Ingerson, Sr., and his mother, Huguette. J.W. Chipping was sold to Douglas (Chick) Ingerson, Jr. after the passing of Rene's stepfather in 1994. Rene then worked for his brother, Douglas (Chick) Ingerson, Jr. at Chick's Sand and Gravel until his passing.

Rene was a quiet, hard working man who preferred to be home, but spending quality time with his daughter, Raina, was most important to him and she was the love of his life, also working with his brother, Douglas (Chick) Ingerson, Jr. and with two of his nephews. He enjoyed fishing when he could, Ice Cold Beer, working with his wood processor, and was a huge racing fan, especially NASCAR.

Rene would help anyone he could and was always by your side when you needed him. He will be greatly missed by all who had the good fortune to know him. Rene was a beloved father, brother, and friend to all.
